Designer Outlet Centre – Full time supervisor
THE CONCEPT Outlet Centre shopping villages give manufacturers and retailers the opportunity to sell items directly to the public. All products are sold at substantial discounts from High Street and recommended retail prices. Being in an out of town location the running costs are kept low and many customers can reach the Village with ease. The result is excellent value for money.
The Jewellery Outlet Ltd is one of a group of companies specialising in the import, distribution and marketing of watches and gold and silver jewellery. Within our group we have twenty-three jewellery shops in locations throughout England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We have extensive experience in jewellery retailing and manufacture and pride ourselves on achieving high standards of presentation and service at all our shops.
The shop specialises in the sale of our own range of gold and silver jewellery and end of season lines from our retail shops and major manufacturers. A significant part of our business is in branded watches from major UK and European manufacturers who license us to sell their end of lines or old season models.
Full time retail experience is essential for this position preferably in jewellery or a similar product area, where one to one service selling is given. This is an excellent opportunity for someone ready to take the first step into management.
